Performance (SRAM 551.AA)
This specialization stream aims to train instrumentalists and popular music singers. As performers, instrumentalists and singers may work as soloists, members of an ensemble or accompanists. They must have a high level of skills in performance and sometimes in improvisation and theatrical expression. Generally, musicians work on stage or in a recording studio. Occasionally, they fulfill a particular function, such as providing music for a special event or participating in a television program, with or without a fixed repertoire. On other occasions, they have to produce their own show and take care of the programming. Conducting an ensemble could also be part of working in popular music as well as producing audio material.
